'Incredible scene on Capital Hill right now, where thousands of anti-Kavanaugh protesters have taken over the Hart Senate Office Building.' As the Senate moved one step closer to voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, thousands of men and women took over the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on Thursday afternoon, voicing solidarity with sexual assault survivors and demanding that lawmakers reject President Donald Trump's nominee. After rallying at Supreme Court earlier in the day, protesters who'd traveled from all over the country filled the building with chants of, 'Whose Senate? Our Senate!' and 'Believe Survivors!' as more than one hundred were arrested after staging mass civil disobedience.
